peninsula of nukes, ybut insist a deal must be irreversiblevan e reverr -- irreversible. >> we use the word with great intention. we will require the steps that demonstration that denuclearization is achieved. we will not take promises. we will not take words. we are looking for actions and deeds. until such time, the president has made it clear. we will keep the pressure campaign in place until we achieve it. >> the progress on the korean peninsula had the president's supporters in a frenzy at a rally in michigan. >> that's very nice. that's very nice. nobel. >> for the latest on the korean peninsula, we go live to seoul. paula hancocks. nobel peace prize. a lot of work to do, paula.
>> reporter: that's right, christine. we are getting more information from the blue house about what exactly was talked about on friday at that summit. kim jong-un has agreed to shutdown his nuke test site in the northeast of the country. he will do that in may. that is a fairly tight timeframe considering may starts tomorrow. he also said he would invite experts and journalists along to make sure it was transparent. he had an interesting comment as well according to the blue house. he is not the kind of person who would launch a nuke missile against south korea or the united states. this is clearly a different kim jong-un that we are seeing in the summit as a matter of months ago, that was the threat we did hear from north korea. certainly a big change of events. he also said that he rejected reports that this test site was obsolete because it had collapsed. that is not true.
they had two more tunnels that were in good condition. if they were going to be aggressive and if they were going to end the korean war and if they were talking frequently with the u.s., they would not need the nuclear weapons. >> paula, thank you for that. from seoul to new york to atlanta. welcome in chris deaton. editor of "the weekly standard." >> good morning. >> we have been down this road before. this time with north korea it feels different. promise to get rid of nuclear weapons if we promise not to invade north korea. are you buying it? >> cautious optimism when awe approach this -- when you approach this stuff. when you look at the past of what has happened.
sorry, guys, i have a little buzzing in my ear. >> hold on. wait a second. they will fix that. it is a mixed minus. you can't even speak. it makes you feel like you are drunk and you can't talk. is it better? >> not yet. christine, i'll continue aiming for the one in the middle. if that makes any sense to you. anyway, i'll continue pursuing the line of intelligent dialogue as i listen to myself talk which is amazing thing. it fits my morning routine. this is the type of thing where cautious optimism is the way to move forward. mike pompeo is looking to negotiate in a different way. i'm interested in the word different. the north korean leader stepping foot in the south and making the
incredible overtures which is shocking after the last year. how does that resolve itself with such abundant snap. >> and the president at the campaign rally. the crowd chanting nobel. he loved it. they keep asking who should get the credit for this. he said i get all the credit. he was being the entertainer in chief. how much credit does the president get? >> certainly you say it is not zero. all this occurred after he took over in the white house. i'm still not sure that trying to conduct twitter foreign policy is the recommended course of action especially with a
belidgerant state. i think this has been a last big 12 to 18 months for north korea with the overtures in pyeongchang. so maybe kim has something else in mind trying to continue to curry favor across the world. i certainly do think that president's administration is taking a different tactic and whether or not he personally deserves credit for the manner in which he pursued it, i don't know. >> folks in oslo hate it. let's talk about the optics of what christine discussed with the white house correspondents dinner in d.c. you were not there. we were not there. michelle wolf, rather predi
predictably after what i see on youtube was vulgar and officials sitting next to her. >> i actually really like sarah. i think she is very resourceful. like she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. like maybe she's born with it. maybe it's lies. it's probably lies. >> let's be clear. that was nasty. sarah san daughtders has been dt in taking on and criticizing the media. those comments and jokes seemed over the line and seemed to immediate into the -- seemed to feed into the president's narrative. >> especially, dave, if you are trying to talk about the us versus elite mentality. in the tribal times, sarah sanders and the white house,
donald trump wants the american people who voted for them. when it comes to just another comedian thumbing their nose at the person who works on behalf of the administration and in a personal way. that undermines any type of good will the press may be trying to breed with the american public at this point given the media's low regard. it has been noted in the last 24 hours here. it is a problem that extends far away. not just last weekend. >> she tore apart the media. sarah sanders story line is getting the attention. she eviscerated the media for making donald trump and making headlines about donald trump and making money off donald trump the whole way. she offended a lot of people. >> christine, we will check back in with you.
49 injured and 29 dead in a pair of blasts in kabul. at least eight journalists, including a cameraman for the french press agency. officials in the afghan capital say a suicide attacker on a motor bike detonated a bomb. someone carried out a second attack and that killed the chief photographer in kabul. afp says that attack targeted a group of journalists who rushed to the scene of the first explosion. >> that is the true risk of journalism. not this mess about the white house correspondent s dinner. the immigration showdown at the u.s. and mexico border. a caravan of migrants camped out at the border at tijuana, mexico. dozens of asylum seekers vowing to remain outside the processing
center until every last one is admitted to the u.s. . >> at the rally in michigan, the president did not sound sympathetic. >> are you watching that mess that's going on right now with the caravan coming up? are you watching this? our laws are so weak, so pathetic. given to us by democrats. they are so pathetic. nancy pelosi, chuck schumer. our laws are so corrupt and so stupid. i call them the dumbest immigration laws on earth. >> the homeland security would arrest anyone crossing the border illegally. let's bring in leyla santiago. >> reporter: christine and dave, what remains of the caravan, the migrants will wait through the night to reach some of the asylum officers and make their claims.
we are seeing some of the central american families that put down blankets with intentions of staying the entire night here. they say they will get to the united states to seek asylum. what is the problem right now? the united states is saying that they do not have the capacity to process these claims. these migrants. they had a long day and long month in this caravan as it has made its way north. right now inside behind the gates, there are 20 to 40 women and children who made their way inside, but they were told by the u.s. officials they don't have the capacity to process their asylum claims. they are waiting to see if that will change overnight. in the meantime, they plan to stay here. again, it has been a long journey for them. march 25th is the day they started at the southern border of mexico.
they stayed in shelters and riding on trains and riding on buses and walking for days. they say it is important to do this the legal way. they turned themselves in or trying to turn themselves in at the port of entry as u.s. federal law permits. they are waiting to see when asylum officers and u.s. officials will allow them to go through with their claims. christine. dave. >> leyla on the border there. t-mobile plans to buy sprint for $26 billion leaving three wireless carriers in the u.s. they will merge after years of negotiations. t-mobile and sprint are the three and four largest carriers. combined it will have 127 million customers and worth $80 billion. making it a fierce competitor for verlandizon and at&t.
they first discussed the merger in 2014 which was blocked after regulators said four companies was ben fifseficial for consume. both companies could he limb late -- eliminate lower prices, but the ceo says the u.s. regulators would see the benefit of the deal. the ceo said the merger will create thousands of jobs, but beat china in the race to 5g. two questions. mega mergers, creating jobs and lowering prices? that is not my experience. how does that happen? >> they are in the space with 5g. they are in the space where it is changing so rapidly, they may need to add lots of jobs to compete. >> are you pewibuying it? >> the companies say they will not raise prices.

>> reporter: christine, the secretary has changed his tone somewhat. in saudi arabia and israel, they share the opinion that iran is a major threat. both capitals, they share the belief that the iran nuke deal in 2015 should be scrapped in one form or another. here in jordan, they have different concerns. the secretary met with the jordanian counterpart. in long remarks, secretary pompeo once mentioned iran. he was talking about what really concerned jordan which is the situation between the israelis and palestinians. we have seen weekly tensions flaring on the line between gaza and israel. the jordanian counterpart did not mention iran once. jordanians are unhappy about the trump administration's decision
to transfer the american embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem. now over the last week, we were attending joint military exercises between jordan and the united states and clearly their focus was the possibility, the threat, perhaps the probability of unrest spilling over from syria into jordan. iran did not enter into the picture. >> ben, thank you. i like chugging beer from a catfish? do you? member of tennessee team firing up the crowd. andy scholes will try to explain all this madness. there it is. next in the "bleacher report."

area of nukes, but insists a deal must be irreversible. >> we use the word irreversible with great intention. we will require the steps that demonstrate the denuclearization is going to be achieved. we will not take promises. we will not take words. we are going to look for actions and deeds. until such time, the president has made clear we will keep the pressure campaign in place until we achieve that. >> the dramatic progress on the korean peninsula had the president's supporters in a frenzy at the rally in michigan on saturday night. >> nobel. nobel. nobel. >> that's very nice. that's very nice. nobel. >> nobel chant. from lock her up to nobel. they have come a long way. for the latest on the korean peninsula, we go to seoul and bring in paula hancocks. paula, good morning.
>> reporter: dave, we are getting more information about what exactly happened at the summit on friday. the blue house telling us that kim jong-un has agreed to shutdown his nuclear test site in the northeast of the country in may. may starts tomorrow. that is a tight timeframe. he said apparently he will invite experts and journalists to view this to make sure it is transparent. and refuted reports that the test site was obsolete because part of it collapsed. saying there are two tunnels that no one knows about that are in good condition. he said he is happy to shut it down if he knows the united states is going to be happy to talk with him frequently and if they are going to continue to deal with ending the korean war and non aggression from the united states. he had an interesting phrase according to the blue house. he is not kind of person to
launch a nuclear missile to the united states. that is odd because last year those were the threats we were hearing from north korea. we heard from john bolton saying he wants actions and not words. we know mike pompeo has been speaking with japan's foreign minister in jordan at the moment. a huge amount of diplomatic activity surrounding the new events. clearly we're seeing on both sides of the border that south koreans want to show the hostile policy is over. >> paula hancocks live for us at 6:30 in seoul. >> joining us this morning is chris deaton. friday was just unbelievable. moving quickly ahead here. i know they were chanting nobel on saturday night in michigan. there is still a lot of work to do here. >> it is putting the cart before
the horse and 750 miles of the trail. that is pretty aggressive. look, you know, mike pompeo talking about needing these steps to be irreversible and referring to the past saying the trump administration will pursue the types of negotiations that we anticipate to see in short order as opposed to the way the united states conducted in the past. i would definitely fixate on that. one of the big questions here is pursuant to what pompeo said. north korea can say whatever it wants. how are you going to have in place the assurances when it comes to monitoring and when it comes to actually getting eyes on progress that north korea is holding up its end of the bargain with the hypothetical. that will play out over the course of years. >> interesting you say that. two key words from the trump administration and you hear it
over and over. irrelevaversible and verifiable. he would use the issue from 2003 and like ybya. when you hear kim jong-un and they are using the libya example. what happened to gadhafi in 2011? does that influence your thinking? >> well, it certainly could. now all of a sudden, you are feeling more threatened than you would otherwise. this certainly is kind of a diplomatic chess game going on right now. so much of it. especially this is the case with the criticism of the people perhaps getting out ahead of themselves and saying that there is going to be something definitely positive that comes of the initial steps. people saying wait a minute. back up a little bit here for a moment and you know talk about how kim jong-un has pursued
these sorts of opt cical illusis if you want to call them with what he has done with pyeongchang as it is more open to the west and open to new ideas. i don't want to rely on i do believe it is a maya angelou quote. i don't want the whiplash actions. >> let's go to the white house correspondents dinner of media elites. the white house correspondents association is distancing itself from the comedian. >> i actually like sarah. she is very resourceful.
she burn s facts and she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. maybe she's born with it. maybe it's lies. it's probably lies. >> ouch. now this is kristin powers. if you have not objected to the women and appearance, i don't want to hear about your outrage over the comedian. yes, her jokes went too far. there is backlash. where does kirsten fall on this? >> i will not provide backlash to the backbacklash. i don't want to drop down the hole here. i hear kirsten's point. we are trying to equate a comedian with the president of the united states. how many times have we heard in the last 36 months that the trump phenomenon has gone on.
normalizing the behavior. this is pushy stuff that if it does go over the line, you expect from a person who is wearing the comedian shoes. if you are the president, you don't. that is not necessarily a defense to go after people in person. pretty viciously and personally face-to-face at these events. i'm not sure what it accomplishes. i think it is true, christine, c-span late night is closed circuit television. nobody is watching that stuff. the only news is the needless vain. >> it makes the media look bad and it feeds into the trump narrative. >> the white house correspondents association vetted her like the white house vetted dr. jackson. they did not at all. watch youtube. the president sets the tone. when you say son of a bitch or
s-hole councountries. >> dave has a list. >> it is taking up my notepad of offensive statements. we appreciate you weighing in, chris. here is the real risk of journalism. breaking overnight. 29 dead and 49 injured in the blasts in kabul. among the dead is at least eight journalists. including a cameraman for the french afp. a suicide attacker on the motor bike detonated explosives. someone disguised as a cameraman carried out the second attack. that explosion killed afp chief photographer in kabul. the attack targeted the journalists who rushed to the scene of the first explosion. immigration showdown playing out at the u.s./mexico border. a caravan of migrants is camped
out waiting in tijuana, mexico after a month-long journey. they are vowing to remain outside the immigration processing center until every last one is admitted to the u.s. >> at the rally over the weekend in michigan, the president did not sound sympathetic. >> are you watching that mess that's going on right now with the caravan coming up? are you watching this? our laws are so weak, so pathetic. given to us by democrats. they are so pathetic. nancy pelosi, chuck schumer. our laws are so corrupt and so stupid. i call them the dumbest immigration laws on earth. >> the homeland security would arrest anyone crossing the border illegally. but let's check in with leyla santiago. >> reporter: christine and dave, what remains of the caravan, the
migrants will wait throughout the night to be able to reach the united states and to reach the asylum officers and make their claims. we are seeing some of the central american families that put down blankets with intentions of staying the entire night here. they say they will get to the united states to seek asylum. what is the problem right now? the united states is saying that they do not have the capacity to process these claims. these migrants. they had a long day and long month in this caravan as it has made its way north. right now inside behind the gates, there are 20 to 40 women and children who made their way inside, but they were told by the u.s. officials they don't have the capacity to process their asylum claims. they are waiting to see if that will change overnight.
in the meantime, they plan to stay here. again, it has been a long journey for them. march 25th is the day they started at the southern border of mexico. they stayed in shelters and riding on trains and riding on buses and walking for days. they say it is important to do this the legal way. they turned themselves in or trying to turn themselves in at the port of entry as u.s. federal law permits. they are waiting to see when asylum officers and u.s. officials will allow them to go through with their claims. christine. dave. >> leyla on the border there. a deadline for president trump's trade tariffs. say that ten times fast. trump's trade tariffs. >> i'm out. >> exemptions for key countries expire today. some officials are heading to
